A PROBABLE LEVEL OF WAVE CREST FOR THE DESIGN OF COASTAL STRUCTURES

Masafumi Kubo, Mitsup Takezawa

Abstract


The height of sea water level in front of a coastal structure changes by the astronomical tide, the meteorological effect and the short period wave. From three histograms of the astronomical tide, meteorological tide and wave height, the probable level of wave crest in the coast will be estimated by the method presented in this paper.
